MW3 Kill Confirmed on Carbon Gameplay – Learning the Type 95

I’m not a good call of duty player, but I just like making videos and posting them on the internet for fun. More of a learning tool for me to record and post my games and see where I go wrong and what I can improve on. I don’t post games that I top the leaderboard or get a high kill count or anything, but interesting games where I might have a nice kill streak going or a good lesson learned!

This was a kill confirmed match on Carbon played on the XBOX 360.

Rayman Origins XBOX 360 Gameplay

I’ve been playing the same old games recently so decided to pick up something new, and Rayman fits that need nicely. Rayman Origins is a throwback to the good old days of 2D side scrolling fun. The artwork is the first thing that jumps out at you on this game, it’s exceptional. The level design is top notch also. There’s lots of fun to be had with Rayman Origins, the learning curve is short but the challenge is also there to keep you occupied for a while.

I played this on XBOX 360 but is also available on PS3 and Wii as well as PC

Roxio Game Capture Card – Hardware Unboxing + Tour

I have been thinking about purchasing a big HD PVR for capturing game console footage but I came across a cheaper alternative called the Roxio game capture card. It allows you to play your games to the TV in HD as it passes through the signal straight to the TV and allows footage capture up to 480p (720×480).

So only standard definition capture but since its half the cost of the cheapest HD PVR and if you’re not too fussed about capturing your gaming footage in SD I’d recommend you check this one out.

Grand Theft Auto 3 For iPad – Virtual Destruction On The Go

Even after 10 years this game doesn’t get old. The controls are far better than I thought they would be on a tablet and the graphics and sound have had a nice overhaul while staying true to the original game. All in all if you’re a fan of the series or just want to take a stroll back down memory lane and have an iPad you should check this one out. At only $4.99 you can’t go wrong. Take a look at the launch trailer below:

Retro Gaming: Donkey Kong Country Awesomeness!

Donkey Kong Country SNES Cover

Donkey Kong Country on the Super Nintendo and probably one of my most favourite games on the Super Nintendo ever made.

A side-scrolling platformer video game developed by Rare featuring the character Donkey Kong, it was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. Following an intense marketing campaign, the original SNES version sold over 8 million copies worldwide, making it the second best-selling SNES game behind Super Mario World (which sold over 20 million copies…pretty large gap!).

I Managed to get my hands on a copy of the game on eBay for $15 so a pretty good deal. I’m really having fun finding the old games I used to love playing as a kid, brings back great memories!
